To mark 15 years of blogging and during the quieter summer break I am republishing some of my blogs which were inadvertently deleted.
Baroness Tonge aka ‘Jihad Jenny’ is on record as saying:
The pro-Israeli lobby has got its grips on the western world, its financial grips. I think they’ve probably got a grip on our party.
She has been stripped of her party responsibilities in the House of Lords and it is ‘deliberate vandalism‘ on the part of Nick Clegg that she has not been thrown out of the LibDem Party.
On 16 January 2012 in the Grand Committee Room of the Houses of Parliament we were treated to another volley of Tonge-twisting drivel. We heard about the IDF “specialising in the humiliation of the Palestinians” (when I quoted to her Colonel Richard Kemp (“..the most moral army in the world“) she did an excellent goldfish impression). Then we got the antisemitic ‘how can Jews act like Nazis?’ innuendo:
What is it about these people that makes them do it? Their ancestors suffered in camps in Germany. The Palestinians had nothing to do with the Holocaust. I understand why no-one takes action against them: Holocaust Guilt. Also the strength of the israeli Lobby: criticise Israel and they tell you you’re being antisemitic. What the Israelis are doing is damaging Jews all over Europe
Mads Gilbert was another speaker. He defamed the IDF as follows:
The Israelis target children on rooftops
He is the radical Marxist who tried to excuse and contextualise 9/11.
@Jeremy Corbyn MP – You must be very proud of hosting such people in the Palace of Westminster
@Louise Ellman MP – Well done for coming to at least some of the meeting. Please report back to your colleagues on the All Party Group Against Antisemitism. On what interpretation of “free speech” is Jeremy Corbyn MP free to book rooms in the Houses of Parliament for meetings where antisemitic discourse runs free?
@Nick Clegg MP: – you are a sickening hypocrite -you call the settlements ‘deliberate vandalism’ but have done nothing to throw a woman who is genuinely guilty of racist vandalism out of your party
